Thank You!


wow, so i’m at the end of my 365. i can’t believe how quickly a year has come and gone. the days, weeks and months went by quickly and that can only mean one thing, YOU are getting older.

the 365 was a lot of fun and one of the few projects i’ve actually completed. there were a few times of frustration when i wanted to set my cameras on fire, but on some days i managed to pull an image out of my…..well, let’s just say i did it. every day.

believe it or not, i’m shy and HATE being in front of the camera, i don’t like my self-portraits, but i’m learning that nobody cares, get over it. Ha! i’m a lot more comfortable in front of the camera now, but i prefer to be behind it.

lots of great things, experiences have come out of this project. I sold several images, about 10 and sales are still coming in. I never imagined that someone would pay me for my work and for doing something i love, not really sure what that says about my day job.

Just wanted to say thanks to all who stopped by, left comments, laughed with me or at me, it was great.

Of course I plan to continue uploading pictures, but everyday? I don’t know, I’ll try, but it won’t be in real time, possibly many of the images that were not included in my 365. I also plan to put down my digitals and do more film work. I’m not going anywhere, I just hope to slow my roll a bit and put the art back into my photography.

do you smell smoke?

    V — you did a fantastic job! You must continue posting — I’d miss you if you stopped.

    I wish you continued success in your artistic ventures — and am looking forward to your future posts.

    Job well done my friend!

      Thanks Frances. Oh I’m still going to upload photos. Thanks for visiting and your support. Now what happened to your party and my cheesecake or carrot cake

      • Well, you would have had to fly to hot, hot, hot (as in temperature) Wichita Falls, Texas. But, I did do the happy dance for you — in honor of the milestone you completed!

        We’ll have to get together if I’m ever in your neck of the woods or I’m in yours 🙂

          i like hot, i think. no, i do. i think. thanks for the happy dance. okay if you’re ever over here or i’m over there, we’ll meet up. i’m in new jersey, at least until it’s time to do the witness protection program shuffle.

  2. Congratulations! That’s such a huge accomplishment; naturally the year flew by for me but I’m so amazed that you did it for a year straight, no breaks. And I *love* that montage photo up there.

    Well done! Now go rest.

  3. Congratulations Valerie! This is such a huge accomplishment! I truly admire you for all of your hard work and its been MY PLEASURE to look at all of these amazing photos you’ve taken this past year! xoxoxo

  4. Congrats, hon. You have more staying power than I, certainly. And you shouldn’t be shy in front of the lens. You’re a beautiful woman! Keep up the good work, regardless (as often as you’d like…or not.) Kudos!

Speak on it!
